I have just recently subscribed to something called CherokeeLink Newsletter and there's an item in the one I just received that caught my eye.

The Cherokee Heritage Center is offering a class in Cherokee marble making and if I lived anywhere near there, I'd be taking this class.

In part, the write-up says:

The Cherokee Heritage Center is offering a class in traditional Cherokee marble making on Saturday, December 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Cherokee National Treasure, Hastings Shade will instruct the class. 

This class is an introduction to the nearly lost traditional technique of marble making.  The history and rules of the game will be included in the class instruction.  Each participant will create their own marble.  The class is part of a series of cultural classes offered by the Cherokee Heritage Center. 

Cherokee marbles is one of the few games that has survived and continues to be a popular sport.  The object of the game is to land marbles in a hole on an L-shaped course by tossing underhanded.  Team work and strategy play a large part in beating your opponent.

Jeanne, I feel at times, like today at work, that I have lost my Cherokee marbles. : )

Sometimes I wonder about myself and I don't have any Cherokee marbles...sometimes I just have haole (how-lee) marbles.  Haole is what the Hawaiians call white people. 

It's not necessarily bad to be a haole.  But it isn't good to be insensitive.... I like to think I'm not.

 

Aloha, Jeanne

Thank you for the compliment.  I like it here - you've got a nice place here.
